2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4dr SUV 4WD (3.7L 6cyl 5A)
Just purchased this vehicle in Sept. after test driving a Liberty. For the extra $5000 there's no comparison. It's smooth, comfortable and solid, with the driving heft of the old Wagoneer. Family member have Grand Cherokees from 2000-2004, and the new V6 has considerably more power. I got the base model, which is very nice, though I did upgrade to Quadra Trac II - seems foolish to not offer a low 4wd gear in a truck of this size. Gas mileage (hwy) up to 25 mpg! (cruise control set at 55 mph, windows closed).
Style, smooth ride, nice amenities on base model, nice long dash, feels substantial compared to foreign competitors, lumbar support is nice.
Trim down the window pillars as they create a blind spot, go back to all 4wd models offering a low range gear.
